Have been participating in a challenge- #anodetowomen. Thirty portraits, one a day for thirty days. We are only suppose to spend 30 minutes on each one but I must admit that some have taken a little longer. Here are my four favorite so far. We are only 9 days into the challenge.

I do not know what was the reason behind this image, it just emerged. I guess my powerful/whimsical women just decided to take the night off. Everyone needs time to play!

Have started a series on Delphi/Strong Women. Among other things. Have gotten studio set up and pretty much a ‘go’ from now on.
These are 11x14, so reasonable size and on sale in my ETSY shop which of course is called DiFergi’s...

This is my latest painting and I am calling it, “Imagine”. People always ask me, “Where do you get your imagination?” See the book sitting on the chair? As a child I read constantly and still do. I once read and I paraphrase-An average person lives but one life while a reader lives hundreds. In our imaginations anything can exist and new realities are created. This painting is an homage to endless ideas and to images we can travel. And yes, I wanted to be a gypsy when I grew up but painting is the next best thing. LOL

Don and I have three bird feeders around our screened in porch. One of our favorite things to do in the early evening is to go on the porch and watch the birds feed. This is my homage to all the birds that entertain us so beautifully! More of my beautiful misfits series.

Just a small piece (9x12) -but a little jewel. This is with my ‘ beautiful misfits’ series. I am loving the jewel tones. I have about 5 or 6 small canvases that I need to paint on. Usually prefer larger canvases but was given the smaller ones, so I will be painting small for a bit. 👍

Right now, life is far from magical for most of the world. Perhaps this is when we should stop and let our minds laugh and be joyful. This painting, I hope, gives you cause to smile.
This piece and others are for sale in my Etsy shop

Enough philosophy from me🤨. In a couple weeks I will distance from it but until then, I will enjoy looking at it.👍

I see a sweetness and kindness in them. Putting the animals in them is fun! So- be on the lookout for more👍.

Right now I am doing an art journal, really like making the little books. These are the first 3 spreads of a 15 spread book. Enjoying the process. Thanks for letting me share with you because I will always create and want to share.

This is an exercise that I did for a class and though it was dubious at times whether it would work, I found that I really like the end result. No title....just done. Thanks for looking👍.

The greatest pleasure I have as an older adult ( dare I say senior) is that I get to pick and choose what I want to do. And I can always rationalize these small pieces as ‘practice’ for larger works.
so...That is my story and I am sticking to it....

This piece is titled, ‘the puppeteer’. Not all pieces have a name this early in the game but this one knew its’ name immediately. Will post the finished piece probably in January. How I long for dismal days when I hunker down in my studio, but for now...I have to go bake some holiday cookies.

The holidays are upon us and little to nothing gets done in my studio. As an artist I love dreary days, cold weather, and any excuse not to go out. Studio time is precious....But it is known that we find joy if we live in the moment.. so I remind myself daily to embrace the craziness of the season... may the end of this year bring you many blessings...love from my heart to you....di

This time of the year is always crazy with the holidays approaching and things to do. We have 2000 kids that trick or treat in our neighborhood, which will happen this Thursday night. I have come to love January where everything just pauses and resets.
Now to do some ornaments for a fund raising activity......it is all good....di

Marc Chagall's work is an inspiration to me. One of my favorite quotes of his is, "if you can't paint love, what is there worth painting?". I hope that my work is filled with love....a rather big order but one can hope...
